Upper Thailand still cool, heavy rains forecast in the South


The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Thursday (November 11) that the strong high-pressure system over upper Thailand is weakening, but the areas still remain cool. The strong northeast monsoon prevails across the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea while the low-pressure cell covers the lower South region. Heavy to very heavy rains are likely over the South.

Waves are 2-3 meters high in the Gulf and more than 3 meters high during thundershowers. People should beware of the severe condition that may cause flash floods and overflows. Residents along the Gulf should beware of inshore surge. All ships should proceed with caution, and small boats should keep ashore until November 13.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours is as follows:

North: Cool weather in the morning with isolated light rains; temperature lows of 20-23 degrees and highs of 30-33 degrees Celsius. Temperature on hilltops is likely to drop to 10-15 degrees Celsius.
